The Herbalist®

Type: David Austin

David Austin named this for its resemblance to `Apothecary's Rose' (Rosa gallica `Officinalis') with the added benefit of repeat blooming. Mr. Austin says that more than one old-rose expert has been deceived by its likeness. Seldom do we get so close a replication of an old rose that adds the repeat blooming factor. The large semi-double blooms are light, crimson-red opening flat to show off the magnificent centers of rich golden stamens. A profusely blooming, vigorous, bushy plant.

We are no longer growing The Herbalist® but will maintain this listing for reference purposes.
